Description
In this innovative book, animals take the shapes of all the letters in the alphabet From an alligator to a zebra, each animal represents a different letter but what could it be? To find the answer, children can pull out the pages to find the letter and the animal's name. This fun format is perfect for children who are learning to grasp the familiarity and phonetics of the alphabet, as the first letter of each animal's name corresponds to the letter depicted. Childrenwill learn their ABCs while exposing themselves to a wide array of animals. Parents and kids alike will delight in Suse MacDonald's unique, cut-paper, collage-style artwork.
